The atmosphere inside this restaurant ( I'm old-- so let this be a warning)... if you were young.. you might have a better opinion.. BUT.. in my elder state.. I am looking for warm, not cold ambiance. The staff was a little stiff ( I think when I spoke and brought out the southern dialect) they became a little more... More

Overall a very nice experience. The waitress was right on with her recommendations. The caesar salad was amazing. I would guess the croutons were made in house as they were a perfect size and texture. The petite filet was AMAZING and my husband loved his ahi tuna. I'm not a fan of a la carte side dishes, and although the... More

The steaks and decor of this place are outstanding. We ordered the crab cakes to start and they were probably the best we ever had! Would defiantly come back, reservation is recommended.

My boyfriend and I ate here in late December during our first trip to the Santa Monica area. After reading great reviews and browsing their menu online, we made the short walk over to the great location near the beach and Third Street Promenade. The high ratings did not disappoint: the food was absolutely outstanding and our waitress could not... More

I was prepared to hate this because of the hype but I don't think I have a single complaint. Our waiter was very lovely and informative. I had a really great elderflower cocktail...ok several. Steak tartare, which I am very critical of, was amazing as was my filet. It was really busy so maybe if you are looking for something... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
